Since 2016 alone, hundreds of hotel rooms and thousands of residential units have been constructed across Greater Downtown Phoenix, with even more projects in the planning stages. None of this is by accident.
Since the inception of PCA in 1983, when a much smaller downtown was in decline, a number of ballot measures led by PCA and the Central City Planning and Development Committee helped usher in catalytic public-private partnerships, processes, and incentives to help make new development projects possible.
For prospective Members, this Committee offers connections, insights and access to the people, development professionals, and government processes that are shaping downtown.
• Providing updates and presentations on current and future projects happening in Greater Downtown Phoenix, broken down by market segment
• Working on ballot measures like MovePHX, which was successfully passed into law in 2015 and will expand light rail, bus services, and improve aging streets across the city
• Acting as a liaison between developers and community groups, encouraging communication and outreach at the neighborhood level
